Default Live CHat Plugin

I know literally nothing when it comes to vBullitein, but I know that ShatterStudios used to have such a plug-in, where another tab would be at the top of the page, or somewhere on the page, and would direct you to a chatroom where anyone on the forum could enter and talk.

This could help in a lot of situations.
  • Talk to a moderator about forum problems.
  • Take your off-topic conversation to this instead of "PM's" and "AIM".
  • Talk to anyone and everyone about anything and everything.

Discuss.

if I'm aloud to spam, I'll vote yes.

But even so, this is just a faster Forum basically.

This forum has alot of people, this would be a good idea. QsK used to have one. No one was ever there though.

To prevent spam there really should either be a time limit on how fast you can talk, or its regs only.

I like the idea though.

Yeah... I agree, regs is the way to go.

I voted yes.

The Problem with the chat when I installed it on Shatter Studios was the bandwidth it ate up, and that was with just 15 - 20 people in it. Now with as many people on here, it would kill the load time of the site.
I am in the process of coding a better chatroom app that wouldn't do that. It will be exclusive to the new and improved SS (which is going by another name.) I will not allow it to be on here, seeing as Z still owes me my money, and I do not like the way he conducts himself when it comes to business matters. So thank him for that.

Damnit.

I think we should still try it out to see how well it runs.

And yes, rules would have to be made, along with options like PPM or something.

I do all of those and they work fine on AIM and i like to see how many PMs i can collect. I think Ash is correct and yet i agree with Low Strife. It would take up WAAYYYYYY TOO MUCH bandwidth. And having it in JUST the regs would be a cool feature to bring people here, but it might generate spam for people wanting to get all those 1500 posts. Idk, i always felt that when it came to Regular Exclusive shit. Even when i tested the H3FR Gallery i felt that, but i didn't mind. It's Z's site and he should decide. I don't know what the deal with Ash and Z is, but i would like to know why would Ash be able to decide or not? Was it THAT MUCH cash that would make him 'owner' of H3F?(Just wondering. No bias.)

Well either way a Live Chat would just be another one of the quite a few ways we message here on H3F.
